The NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine’s new Through the Lens Initiative (TTLI) strives to document creatively, visualize, memorialize, empower, and invite community members to thoughtfully recognize what is around us – what we as a community interact with and touch in our everyday lives. This new photographic initiative directly encompass the new student chosen NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine motto, “Hands, Minds, and Hearts.”
The community of NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine is exceptionally talented and innovative. Our new initiative will draw on this unique talent base - to create a photographic gallery, uniquely identified as us!
TTLI is looking for any type of original photography that creatively connects with the NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine. From macro to micro and anything in-between; in any color scheme -black and white, or inclusive of the brightest colors.

All are enthusiastically invited to submit their original photography. Have fun as you “create and relate” your photography, Through the Lens, to our College and the segment theme.
A panel of judges comprised of NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine students, faculty, and administrators, will review and chose the top photo submissions. Award prizes will be issued to the top three submissions for this segment. In addition, winning photo submissions will be prominently displayed in the buildings of NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine.
Photos will be judged on criteria including: creativity, subject matter, relationship to the college and the specific segment theme, overall impact, and visual appeal.
When submitting a photo, please include the name of your photograph (if applicable) and a brief statement (1 or 2 sentences) describing how the photo relates to the College and the segment theme.
To encourage creativity, the judging panel may choose to consider a photo that is not directly related to the College of Osteopathic Medicine, but is still related to the segment theme.
If a photo submission was not previously chosen as a winning photo, and is deemed appropriate for a future theme, at the discretion of the committee co-chairs, the photo may be entered for consideration in future segments of Through the Lens.
Each ‘segment’ will award a first place, second place, and third place photo submission.
The winning photographs will be prominently displayed in our campus buildings. Displayed photos will be changed as each new segment opens.
Awards of $75.00 for 1st place, $50.00 for 2nd place, and $25.00 for 3rd place, along with additional surprise items, will be issued to our photography winners.
